A Little About Me
I’ve lived all around the US, but I call Kansas home now (KC). I’ve been a writer and entertainer for many years. It’s what I do…
Freelance Writing: I’ve written for numerous newspapers as a contributing reporter and editorial columnist. I’ve also been a content contributor for magazines and social media outlets. Most recently, I’ve created this amazing blog titled “The Secret Life of Pizza” which features fun, random content meant to entertain and inform.
Books: I’m a published author, with a variety of books available nationally and internationally. My first book, “At Ground Zero”, was an Amazon.com best seller when it was first published in 2011. Since then, I’ve since written numerous others, including the popular titles “Disaster Planning Made Easy” and “Storm Safe Kids“, with more books on the way.
Music: Once upon a time, I was a well known DJ under the name “Marty Mcfly”. I worked in radio and nightclubs, then later as a mobile DJ with the legendary “Windy City DJ’s” and my own company Hit Mix USA. After performing at over a thousand events across the US, I no longer perform live as a DJ, but I do still produce dance music mix shows for online distribution. You can listen to some of my DJ mix shows by Clicking Here…
Comedy: In years past, I’ve dabbled a bit in stand up comedy. Could there be a return to the stage? Stay tuned…
Speaking / Media: I’m a nationally certified safety educator, specializing in disaster preparedness, emergency planning and personal protection. I’ve often been featured on TV, radio and in print media as a disaster subject matter expert, in addition to being a highly requested speaker and consultant on these topics.
As if all the above things weren’t enough, I also have over two decades of experience in the public safety field.
One of the most important things I do is I’m an advocate for suicide prevention and post traumatic stress awareness. I’ve endured some serious bumps on the roads of life. I do what I can to keep others from falling into the holes I’ve seen far too often.
Q. WHY IS THE SITE NAMED “THE SECRET LIFE OF PIZZA”?
A. Because I’m a pizza connoisseur. And besides, why not?!?
I hope you’ll follow my blog. I hope you actually enjoy what I write also. I may not be getting rich doing what I do, but if I can make at least one person’s day better, my job has been done.
